An alarming study has been revealed about the rise in cases of Melanoma in young adults between the ages of 18-39. The past 40 years collectively, the rate of this deadly skin cancer grew by 800 percent for woman alone! For men, it was about half that at 400 percent.

Researchers have been reviewing cases spanning those 40 years and have found that the cases reported per 100,000 people have drastically doubled. You may be asking why this may be? There has been an extreme rise these past 2 decades alone with indoor sun screening using ultraviolet (UV) lights that are popular among young woman. HealthiTan DOES NOT utilize this method but opts to take a more natural less cumbersome approach to tanning.

According to an article published on the Skin Cancer Foundation’s site recently:

UV rays emitted by tanning machines are cancer-causing, and Indoor ultraviolet (UV) tanners are 74 percent more likely to develop melanoma than those who have never tanned indoors; those who tan indoors just four times a year increase their risk of developing melanoma by 11 percent. Indoor tanners are also 2.5 times more likely to develop squamous cell carcinoma and 1.5 times more likely to develop basal cell carcinoma.
